Shaun Cameron has stepped away from Renaissance Brandon and will be replaced as the organization's chair by developer Steve McMillan.
Cameron was chair of the Ren Brandon board for two years, and previously served as vice-chair and citizen-at-large of the downtown development corporation.
He says he's leaving the organization to spend more time focusing on his career. Cameron works at Career Connections and does media production work. He is also a weekly Brandon Sun columnist.
"I am a firm believer in pouring everything a person can into these types of roles and do not want to be in a position whereby I feel I have given a half-hearted effort towards something that is so vitally important," Cameron said in a statement.
Cameron will be replaced as chairman by Steve McMillan, who was previously vice-chairman of the board.
McMillan is vice-president of planning services with VBJ Developments and is expected to bring a strong urban development and community planning expertise to the board.
"I am honoured to become the next chairman of Renaissance Brandon", McMillan said. "Shaun will be missed at the board table and we wish him the best of success with all of his endeavours."
Michael Cox will become the new vice-chairman of Renaissance Brandon and will also replace Cameron on the city council joint working committee, which is working through Renaissance Brandon organizational structural changes.
Cox, a licensed Architect and resident of Brandon since 1975, is a Fellow and the Manitoba / Saskatchewan Regional Director of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, and currently serves on the board of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. He is also vice chair of the Assiniboine Community College Board of Governors.
"I am pleased to be able to work with Steve and the Renaissance Brandon board in shaping a new direction," Cox said.
